From Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, on a recent Sunday afternoon, project participants walked with their invisible dogs all around the neighborhood. The leashes were on loan from the owner of the factory where the invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s.

When working with these dogs, patience is a must. We cannot ask more of them than they are able to give. It can be hard to wait patiently and let a dog come to you. However, studies of fearful dogs have shown that putting pressure on them doesn’t work. Slowly introduce things like the leash and toys by placing them in the dog’s range and letting them sniff and explore at their own pace.If you are out on a walk with one of these dogs and they pancake or freeze, come down to their level and use your voice and soft body language to encourage them along. Move a few paces in the direction they wish to go and then gently curve back the way you were headed. Avoid putting tension on the leash; instead gently stroke your fingers along the leash in the direction you’d like the dog to go.

This was just what I needed! Our new little rescue dog walks on a leash like a dream, but he mouths it when I first snap it on. He’s a tiny guy, so control isn’t the issue. I just don’t want him destroying the equipment! I’ll be spraying it with bitter apple and keeping a toy handy for next time.
It's so much fun to take care of him like a real puppy
